The Benne seed popularly called Sesame is a flowering plant of the Sesamum indicum genus that are grown in both Africa and India mainly for its economic benefits. It belongs to the Pedaliaceae family and contains a precious oil which accounts for about 45 to 50 percent of it’s contents.
In essence, Sesame is an oilseed that is cultivated for its numerous industrial, commercial and health benefits. They have been proven to be a good source of protein, fats, Vitamin B and fiber when added to your daily food diets.
Currently, the seed is a hotcake and demands for it is actually high. Nigeria exportation of the Benne seed is on the increase annually. Towards the last quarter of the year 2017, Nigeria ranked as the largest producer of Sesame seed in Africa and the 3rd biggest in the World trades market with an output of 580,000 tonnes annually.
Local suppliers or famers of this seed can be found in the Northern parts of the country like in Jigawa, Nasarawa and Sokoto. So also in Middle-Beltan states like Benue, Gombe, Kogi and Plateau. This could be because the cash crop is draught-resistant and thrives with little or no artificial fertilizer.
